Transcript

  • 1. Genocide, Terrorism, and Hate Sternberg’s Theory of Hate
  • 2. History of Genocide
    • Long and illustrious, unfortunately.
    • Modern examples include:
      • 60 of 80,000 Hereros killed by German Army in 1906 (Southwest Africa)
      • Ottoman Empire’s virtual extermination of the Armenian population
      • 1932-33 starvation of millions of Ukrainians by Joseph Stalin.
      • 1971 slaughter of 3 million Bangladeshis by Pakistani forces.
      • 800,000 Hutus killed in Rwanda in late 1990’s.
      • Current crisis in Sudan, final death toll unclear.
  • 3. Theories of Hate
    • Freud and the death instinct (Thanatos).
    • Evil: may be a component of all humans (see Jung).
      • The banality of evil – Eichmann was not a monster but rather a “normal” human.
    • The power of the situation (Milgram).
    • The role of evolution – aggression as a survival strategy.
    • The Moral Imperative – genocide is seen as a moral duty (e.g., ethnic cleansing).
    • Instrumental aggression – political control, land accumulation.
  • 4. Three Components of Hate
    • (1) Negation of Intimacy: Repulsion and disgust.
      • Seek distance from target.
      • Think of propaganda against Jews in Germany leading up to and during the Holocaust.
  • 5. Three Components
    • (2) Passion in hate: Anger/fear
      • Intense anger or fear in response to threat.
      • May be a part of the fight or flight response.
    • (3) Decision/commitment to hate: Devaluation through contempt.
      • Devalue group so that they become “less than human.”
  • 6. Taxonomy of Hate
    • Three components lead to seven different types of hate.
    • (1) Cool hate: Disgust (negation of intimacy alone). Hater wishes to have nothing to do with the target. They are garbage.
    • (2) Hot hate: Anger/fear (passion alone). Hot, reactive violence. E.g., road rage, gang behavior and honor.
  • 7. Taxonomy of Hate
    • (3) Cold hate: Devaluation (decision/commitment alone). Thoughts of unworthiness directed to the other group. Referring to the Soviet Union as the Evil Empire.
    • (4) Boiling Hate: Revulsion (negation of intimacy + anger/fear, but without commitment). Target is inhuman and something must be done to reduce the threat but the target may change from time to time.
      • For example, our shifting opinions of the Soviet Union before, during, and after WWII.
  • 8. Taxonomy of Hate
    • (5) Simmering Hate: Loathing. Negation of intimacy + devaluation and commitment.
      • No passion, just long simmering hate.
    • (6) Seething hate: Revilement. Anger/passion + Devaluation and commitment. Hatred directed at those who pose a threat (and always will). Militias demonstrate this variant.
  • 9. Taxonomy
    • Burning hate – need for annihilation. All three components.
      • Hated targets are subhuman and will always be. Desire to eradicate them from planet.
